Wow! A HUGE Slice

Except on Tuesdays, slices are only cheese & sauce. Tuesday you can add toppings. We visited on Saturday, so it was cheese for us. Lorenzo & Sons is a very small place great for a late night slice. Don't miss this "Joint".

Went to Lorenzo's after a concert at the TLA. Scumbag cashier rang me up for 2 slices and a to go box (should've cost $7.00 and change). I gave scumbag cashier a $20 and he gave me back $2.

When I moved to Florida it was a missed item that ranked up there with other Philly treats worth the extra workouts and gas to get there. It's simple really great sweet sauce cheese... More

Right before we went to Philadelphia a couple of weeks ago, we saw that Lorenzo & Sons was ranked #31. As we are originally from the NorthEast we were craving really good East coast pizza. So, we went to Lorenzo & Sons. Boy, were we ever disappointed. The flavor was mediocre at best; a step just above the chains like... More

Well like I said about Jim's Steaks, if in Philly and on South Street, and you get a hankering for PIZZA, you have to go to Lorenzo's at 3rd on South street

Lorenzo's pizza is so good. A nice big plain slice. No fancy stuff. The crust is perfect and the sauce is tasty. I go out of my way to get it.
